Awakening the Good Samaritan

It is never a mistake to learn how to be more successful, wealthier, or more fulfilled. It is never a mistake to learn how to be happier in your relationships and in your life. And it is never a mistake to learn how to have a better relationship with your GOD, higher power, or whatever force, inspiration, or power it is that leads, guides, and inspires you toward worthy and life enriching intention.

Are you familiar with the story of the Good Samaritan? We will use it here to depict our point:

A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead.  A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side.  So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.  But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.  He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.  The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?

The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

The Good Samaritan was a good Samaritan because of the resources he had to offer in conjunction with the good intention within him that directed his charity and good-samaritanempathy toward his fellow man. Without the resources of capital to provide for the person in need, the Samaritan is still good, but he is left largely unable to care for the needs of his neighbor. Intention alone is not sufficient.

As Wayne Dyer says, and I’m paraphrasing You simply can’t be poor enough to make someone else rich, and you can’t be sick enough to make someone else well.” If we seek to change things in the world, I am reminded of the words of Gandhi “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Believe me, if you think money is the root of all evil then I guarantee you haven’t spent much time in a poor neighborhood. Love of money may be the root of all evil, but money itself is not evil or good but simply a tool.

Money is neutral. It can be used to benefit or to harm; it depends on the hands of the person it’s in. Money doesn’t care either way. Given this truth, then my question for you is this “whose hands do you prefer the abundance of wealth to be in?”

money mountainsBut where will this wealth come from? There’s no sense re-inventing the wheel when there are already so many good tires to choose from. You’ll need to decide which of the wealth vehicles suits you personally and outfit yourself accordingly with the tire or tires of your choice.

Decide which provides best for your unique personal needs and then pursue it with passion. As it should be obvious we have chosen Network Marketing as our vehicle of choice and built our team in a particular fashion for a reason.

There are ways to make the most of each of the money roads, and to make the most of yourself along the way. To do this we refer to the road maps. We refer to these as systems and they may include tools as part of the plan designed for you to generate the greatest results possible, with the least amount of trouble, in as short a time as possible.

You must prepare yourself accordingly for success. Success doesn’t just fall in your lap because you read the map! You need to follow the system as directed.

You’ll need to take consistent action and continually monitor your progress and performance along the way. Are you on track? Are you following through regularly with the plan? How is it working? Good, bad, up, down, or otherwise? Are you off course or on course? Given your results, you may need to modify and make adjustments to the plan accordingly as you live, learn, and grow.

Capitalize on the experience and know-how of those who have gone before you and successfully plotted the route that you must follow.

Be yourself and develop your individual personality, but when it comes to the road of success, don’t veer too far from the tried and true path. Do this and dave mmmmsave yourself years of trial and error, feigned victory and devastating defeat.

Persevere, until you fulfill your plan, and attain the desired results. Don’t re-invent the wheel. Be smart. Pick a proven system. Pick a solid team. Build a solid foundation for success. The wealth of experience and frustration saving strategies you’ll find are more than worth the expense, effort, and capital, you may exhaust in finding them. This will pay handsome dividends for you in the end.

It seems simple enough to understand and yet it is amazing how many people will suffer needlessly because they will not invest in themselves to a sufficient enough degree to attain the training necessary for their own success.

People will invest thousands of dollars and spend years of their time attaining a college education so they can “get a good job.” But the very same people remain reluctant, doubting and often unwilling to invest the time effort or capital necessary to insure their own financial success.

A good job is neither a guarantee nor a contractual agreement that assures you success in life. For most a JOB stands just over broke.

People often won’t put down the three to five thousand required for a training session that has been specifically designed for their personal success and financial needs. A three day seminar is just too much time to afford they claim, but the ten years of schooling and the inherent student debt necessary to become a doctor these days makes perfect sense to them. Go figure!

Make no mistake about it; you will reward yourself tremendously by investing in the specific strategies needed to win playing the game of life. Paying heed to this simple yet vital suggestion and applying it to your own personal destiny will serve you well on the road to great achievement.

If you want to know how to develop a state of mind, and way of living that will attract success and abundance into your life, then you have stumbled upon a landmark opportunity.

If you need to change your mind from failure conscious to success consciousness and bust out of your old self negating routines, then you are in the right place. And if you would like to know how to convert your ideas into success and to co-create the life that you desire, then get ready to celebrate.

This is the vision and hope I have for you as we move forward together on your journey toward success.
